t d this board amazing supported in legislation earlier this year i thank my colleagues for that the legislation i'm introducing today will make a small change allowing a business and building of 3 or more stories to delay a vertical sign higher than what is currently allowed loose not trevor with this features or rise above the residential windows are above the roof lien or three hundred feet only a handful of businesses the adu's tomorrow for entertainment this legislation will allow the auditorium to pride signage more appropriated for the size and scale of its building ass as well as the location in the days
5:02 am
ever upper redevelopments the geary expressway gifted the japantown neighborhoods in a recurrentless efforts to funnel many cars having a large signage will help to simplify japantown as more than that places it pass but by a cultural designation and that will less than to visible and symbolizing bridge the gap creates by the geary expressway a large sign for the fillmore auditorium will help how the castro theatre has branded the castro my second item today is to introduce a drafting request supervisor cowen and i will be introducing a drafting request to the da and controller to draft legislation that will create a permanent city reward
5:03 am
fund to compensates those who provides information leading to and arresting and conviction in any unsolved murder case in san francisco. >> in the parts 6 years san francisco has average about 50 homes per year each a strategy a loss of a sister or father a friend each should not have happened and deserve every effort for justice we're according to most metrics the wealth it big or smallest city with that wealth comes obligations for everyone that has been given much, much will be demanded when it comes to the worse crime our city faces we should put our wealth to use to help the families of the victims and get the most violate offenders over the streets the
5:04 am
city has at times offered rewards but it does so at an a.d. o ad hoc no funds or process this could lead to the prospective that some lives are more important than others that's not the case i'm proposing a permanent city funds to provide awards up to $250,000 to anyone that brings information that leads to the arresting and conviction in an unsolved murder case the legislation will establish specific criteria because in many cases our police department solves the cases without a need for an awards the funds should think limited to homicide cases that have gone unsolved with the police had exhausted the leads and for which the police chief has in his or her determination
5:05 am
that a with regard is necessary it should be subject to the annual appropriations for years carrying forward and all this requires a small amount of taxpayer money thankfully we're talking about a small number of cases but in those cases we should be doing everything we can and in those cases this ward a or regard can make a difference san francisco has an regard fund of the do. please note: any of the members may speak without taking and deals with people pulling fire alarms if fire alarms, we can surely do it to solve murders. >> thank you, madam president. supervisor kim is asking to be rereferred. >>supervisor london breed: actually
5:06 am
supervisor cohen would like to speak to my last item. >>supervisor malia cohen: as we continue to develop this legislation, i hope we will have your support. i think it's critical that we have watched mothers come to the chamber to sit for 2 hours to ask, beg and plead for assistance. it's a small gesture that we can begin to help heal not only the families that have been torn by acts of violence but bring a human touch to how we address crime in our city and in our county. i hope once this legislation is written and finalized that we will have full support from all 11 members on this legislation so we can send a powerful message not only to the public, but to the mothers in particular who
5:07 am
have suffered a great loss and who continue to suffer and hopefully our efforts will be to help them bring them, i don't want to say closure, but settle their mind and bring some peace so they understand that law enforcement is working on all sides for everyone. i think it's incredibly important for us to remember that justice should swing both ways. thank you. city clerk: thank you. supervisor avalos? >>supervisor john avalos: thank you, madam clerk. i want to thank supervisor breed and cohen on this and i would like to be a sponsor. >> thank you, supervisor avalos. >> city clerk: madam president, supervisor would like to be recognized. >> with that we'll go to public comment. city clerk: at this time the
5:08 am
public may now address the entire board of supervisors for up to 2 minutes on items within the jurisdiction of the board without reference to items 1-50 where items have been previously been satisfied. direct your remarks as a whole, not to individual supervisors nor to the audience. speakers use is interpretation assistance will be allowed twice the amount to testify. if you would like documents to be portrayed on the project or please state this. >>supervisor london breed: first speaker please. public speaker: two songs. [singing]
5:09 am
>>supervisor london breed: thank you, next speaker please. public speaker: my name is christopher dall. to symbolism on my shirt. in the center is an equal sign
5:10 am
that indicates balance between one side and the other. a state of equality. it's a symbol of the carbon upload. all the carbon dioxide that point in our common air. down arrow is a form of carbon dioxide that the plant life of our world pulls down out of our common air. it's the carbon download of the planet and this upload that is balanced. there is 2 words that can be read as carbon balanced or balanced carbon. it's meaningful in both ways. the silver on blue symbolizes the breakup and disappearance of the north polar ice cap. we have been out of balance for a long time. the glacial records show that accumulated atmospheric carbon overload in the atmosphere minus the
5:11 am
amount of carbon sequestered has been going up for the last 10,000 years. to avoid any possibility of dreadful and disastrous climate predictions is to balance our carbon upload with carbon download. this requires enough fresh water to irrigate an empty desert to grow trees to grow carbon out of the air permanently. if we balance our current carbon account, mother nature will handle our historical overload. thank you, president barack -- president breed? public speaker: hello, i want to show this little short video
5:12 am
>> is it working? we'll take the next speaker and make sure it's working. next speaker, please. public speaker: madam board of supervisors, dear supervisor tang. on september 30th, an article appeared announcing affordable housing legislation sponsored by yourself and mayor lee. there is a group of 40 plus san francisco resident, we applaud your effort to ensure that affordable housing remain at the top of your list of priorities. as you are aware, long time residents of san francisco who reside at midtown park apartments are facing displace many from our homes. many would qualify for the housing to be built by 2020 per the new legislation. unfortunately, however a number of families could be displaced within coming days with no place to
5:13 am
live in this world class city who promise to keep san francisco a city of everyone to find themselves among the moem -- homeless population you currently seek to house. the city hall was once a midtown parks apartment resident. many families are in the midst of displacement where middle class housing is occurring. the five initiatives contapt -- contained in the new legislation, expiring of affordable units and no tenants in units are displaced. part of this effort is to propose a legislation that would strengthen the city's legislation tools. affordable housing with sponsors and housing and community
5:14 am
development will prohibit the kinds of agreement and culmination after 30 years. as it relates to tound apartment. >>supervisor london breed: thank you. i'm sorry, your time is up. [video] public speaker: can you talk to me. we've been standing outside of city hall for the longest trying to get your attention. mayor lee, don't ignore
5:15 am
us. that's not fair. we lost our children to homicide. why i'm saying that, my name is paul it brown and my son was murdered august 14, 2006. i have been out here, i have been to mayor willie brown and newsom and now the honorable mayor lee. i was very embarrassed that day. i want ed lee that i'm not going to bite you. all i want to do is let you know the pain is is still going on with mothers like myself. we want to put our pictures, we want a memorial and our children's pictures the same way that you are giving everybody else, sandy hook and domestic violence people. they are honored to put their pictures on the bus. i'm not asking to put the pictures on the bus.
5:16 am
this is what i have left of my son. this is what is going to on today with the murders on the streets to senseless violence. everybody knows who murdered my son. thomas hannibal, paris moffat, andrew videau, jason thomas. they were all out there when my son was murdered. i fight for other mothers and fathers. the mayor said i know who killed your son. how long do we have to grieve? i have been doing this for 9 years. the pain is still the same. no one should walk away from us. we are not going to hurt anybody. we can speak for our children better than anyone else. >> thank you, next speaker, please.
5:17 am
public speaker: good afternoon, everybody. san francisco has a long history of displace ment. i have lost my home and they promise equity and unfortunately a decade long work towards at a goal that began in 1995 and directors and in 2007 with your legislative body has been put to a halt. now, many folks facing gentrification for the third time. with increase or promise of evictions from the mayor's office of housing. if i may have the overhead, please. thank you.
5:18 am
now, these evictions they will commence october 12th, black on white. it says so there. if you do not sign your new lease it may become a public housing development. you will be evicted. we do face the largest flight of our eviction of residents. ten families already pushed out by the actions of mow and mercy. how many more have to leave. thank you very much for your time. i appreciate it. >> thank you, next speaker, please. public speaker: i will keep this brief. the board has a resolution in midtown to give people the at some point to own their apartment complex. if this is disregarded along with the
5:19 am
board of the eastern neighborhoods plan, then i'm not sure how you can persuade many residents that you are taking this seriously. >>supervisor london breed: thank you very much. next speaker, please. public speaker: i'm also here in part of the midtown tenant apartments. i'm doing a research project on their history and learned a tremendous amount about their history, their survival of redevelopment. midtown originated in 1969 as relocation housing. they are still owed quite a bit by the city and that doesn't seem to be forthcoming even though in 2007, the board of supervisors pledged that no resident in midtown would face displace ment. they are also receiving displacement
5:20 am
in 2007 the board of supervisors pledged that it would work in towards ownership. i don't see why we are working in the opposite direction from ownership. where the pledge is from the board of supervisors to continue to working with midtown residents for full ownership for their properties which in my opinion they are owed over many decades. some of these people had family members that owned victorians that were demolished in the 1960s. the least they can have now is ownership of their apartments. thank you. >>supervisor london breed: thank you, next speaker, please. public speaker: hello, my name is
5:21 am
andres. i'm here to support midtown housing. many of the people were evicted already from the fillmore and now these homes are worth quite a bit. after they were promised to have some now they are being lifted. it was promised to them if they did that in 2007 there would be some movement towards ownership. i would like to remind the people here that they have a certain duty to make good on the words they said. these words can't just be idol. thank you. >>supervisor london breed: thank you, next speaker please. public speaker: richard stone, san francisco party of county council. a san francisco resident here
5:22 am
to support midtown residents. i would like to thank eric mar in light of their testimony and shows that it's paid on both in terms of the activism that spoke of in light of many people that i know that on facebook just last week i had to talk down from a suicide attempt because he had been recently become homeless himself. and just seeing something like this happen on such a bad scale when we know that other remedies can actually be done. we certainly hope that in light
5:23 am
that is happening in the promise that supervisor breed make that will work in midtown. i hope that everything will be done in good faith. thank you for your time. >> thank you. next speaker, please. public speaker: hello, i'm here also to speak in support of midtown residents. i hope their questions will be answered and i hope they get a lease that is fair given the long context of displacement in that area and what they are owed by the city and in the context of san francisco's rising displacement. i think we need to consider the many forms that displacement can take. it makes sense to talk about
5:24 am
paying for one's share but we need to look at different ways that people can be displaced and the effect that this outcome will have. public speaker: good afternoon. i'm a 25 resident of midtown. we want ownership. madam president, today is the first time that you are willing to sit down to talk to us. we are so very happy because we've been trying for at least the last 3 months. thank you. >>supervisor london breed: thank you, next speaker, please. public speaker: hello, i'm
5:25 am
sylvia johnson. i have been going to court on these proceedings. i think we need to produce better things. or housing in 2006. there is no way that they did not accept that housing. built a good foundation. because of my eye sight.
5:26 am
i can't see very well. i have been going to school. our house is more important and all these people that are living on the streets. i think they are a bunch of things especially that helps cure cancer, cure all kinds of diseases. it's been our whole life. we need to put more steady housing instead of running people out of housing. this is a ridiculous way that it's doing to our society. this change and what we need in the world to go and do new ways of
5:27 am
living. >>supervisor london breed: thank you very much. next speaker please. public speaker: the united states is only fascist terrorist country who evict 85 years old people. united states concentration camp from new york to los angeles and san francisco only this country. today -- today board of supervisors on the streets eating from the garbage can, sleeping on the floor. how
5:28 am
such a country who spend so much money for this. >>supervisor london breed: thank you, next speaker, please. public speaker: my name is -- madam president, supervisors, tenderloin activist north of market.
5:29 am
i do appreciate the work of barbara taylor. she presented here information on am radio, a low tech methodology which doesn't require a lot of money. it's environmentally friendly. but in any audio visual representation by any information is transmitted by the audio signal alone. a trillion dollars worth of satellites could fall out of sky and am radio would still be working. it's a possibility. unfortunately. i appreciate what she said about her dad going to school. it's common in our generation. there was a lot of narrative that there was a lot of children of the war generation rejected their values and didn't want to
5:30 am
find a war and beliefs. one of the signs of aging and process is you get to see more complexity in life, when they got the gi bill from roosevelt they created the state college system and higher education system that my generation benefited from. they are the first wave of my own generation. it was much more complex than it was presented. i think the pendulum swings and a lot of speakers are in the middle. we are in a big pendulum swing now and things are changing. >>supervisor london breed: thank you, next speaker, please. public speaker: tom gilberte.
5:31 am
water under the bridge last week here, recology. i presume the trucks are going to make a return, four trucks an hour. 600,000 miles extra driving. now, 2015, in california, there is no water under the bridge. the carolinas there is a thousand year flood. climate change, climate wobbles. 5 million tons of diesel, soot and carbon. it's not in the direction we need to go. water under the bridge. more tons of soot and carbon. it's not where we want to go.
5:32 am
okay, last week, part 5 of the five part housing plan. we got resident condos for rental units. we got 30% market rate. the other percent, if you lived in an area for 30 years in a local zip code, these homes are for you. the next 15% if you lived in the area and you are a 20-year resident, these homes are for you. that's 25 homes local zip code. next 5% if you are a 30-year resident
5:33 am

5:34 am
out how to put a flashing light in the middle of the street because literally people are on four lane, one lane streets around my block and they cut through racing all the time. people have videos of the vehicle racing and there are children and seniors and other people living in my apartment building. another dog was hit by a car and blinded. i don't want to hear about children or elderly people being hit. this officer was just dropping off someone at the no. 52 a du across the street and there was zero reason for him to be speeding. i'm be rift because of the loss of my service animal and i would really like to improve the safety on the street where i live because danger
5:35 am
exist everyday. thank you. >>supervisor london breed: thank you, next speaker. public speaker: i would like to put this commentary on the tv. it took matthew henry 40 years to write his commentary in the bible. there is two guys in the testament who got what they wanted. it was solomon, he was the king and he asked for wisdom and elijah was wiser than him so he could speak to the lord. what would you say if god said you can have what you want? god told moses he was going to kill everybody in israel and start over with him. he did that with him instead of elijah because although elijah was saved he wasn't the type of christ as
5:36 am
moses was and he died on the cross for our sins and he knew moses was going to ask for forgiveness. if he asked elijah he would have asked for his wife. he asked solomon who asked for wisdom and specifically because you did not ask me to kill your enemies, i'm going to give you riches and you are going to be like no other king in all of israel. eventually truth is going to come out. god is a god of truth and jesus said, hear my voice. i called saturday and asked him to interview jones. he said no, that's national security. i'm hoping that rush limbaugh,
5:37 am
glen beckon knew will follow the lead. by the way, alex jones. it's a big story. >>supervisor london breed: thank you, next speaker, please. no other speakers, are there any other members who would like to provide public comment at this time, seeing none, public comment is closed. madam clerk can we go back to roll call for introductions. i would recognize supervisor kim. >>supervisor jane kim: thank you. first is to establish the warriors center and advisory committee. also what we are entitle will the mission bay. this is $14.1 million additional net tax
5:38 am
generated for the war era. beyond for affordable housing and parks and mission structure. what is being proposed by the mayor's office and my office to establish a fund which will set aside $10 million annually to ensure we are properly mitigating by the near arena joining our stadium. the annual operating cost. the fund will be there to be available for annual operating cost for sf mta, sf p.d. and dpw to dramatically improve the third service line for events. provide additional 28 parking for officers and to ensure traffic flow on evenings and daytimes. debt service for capital improvement to ensure new light rail vehicles
5:39 am
and for the mini metro to allow more attendees to deploy on the site and to reserve augment service on days with overlapping events at the proposed arena and at & t ballpark. i want to be careful to emphasize that this proposed legislation will follow approval of the proposed project that is currently before ocii and the board of supervisors, 100% project on private land. this established the major improvement advisory committee in the mission bay including the warriors, uc sf and representatives of district 6 office. i want to acknowledge the nine other members of the board of
5:40 am
supervisors, president breed, mar, tang, wiener and farrell and yee. i would like to continue this discussion to ensure as we bring another major arena to this city, a prospect that many are excited for that we are investing in the infrastructure needed to ensure our city can handle major events and additional needs for services. my second item is in relation to a new bill signed by governor brown and it's impact here potentially here in san francisco. as many of you remember on june 7, 2011. this board unanimously approved the treasure island disposition and development agreement. this project would create 8,000 units of housing. while the original deal committed 30% of housing for
5:41 am
low income and homeless in san francisco was brought forth by the governor to disolve the redevelopment agency. the treasure island development authority quickly recalibrated it's structure to the city department and commitment of affordable units to 25%. i made a personal commitment that if state law were to change, i would work to ensure that san francisco would recommit to 30% on the affordable goal on the island. further on the last negotiation we were able to make two amendments to the dda with the developer. one to increase the percentage of affordable units to 25% regardless of any change this state law and second allowing for increase to 30% should there be a state law changed within 5 years. supervisors avalos and
5:42 am
cohen and wiener joined me to assembly to amend states law to utilize tax increment to building 30% affordable housing. ultimately we were not successful in showing the inclusion of treasure island in ab 664. but recently we have had great news. on september 22nd, governor brown signed ab 2 for the state of california. this measure allows for public agencies and schools to establish and revitalize and specify disadvantaged communities including communities of crime, unemployment rate and former military bases. this measure will also draft
5:43 am
the documented lack of affordable housing that no funds generated would be set aside for affordable housing. this will take affect on january 2016. according to the dda, inquiring state law will come up in june of 2016. i'm calling upon the treasure island development authority board of directors to establish explore impact on treasure island and to develop recommendations to recapture the 2.5% of housing which was promised in 2011 and examine whether we can establish 40% of affordable housing on treasure island. i want to thank the board of directors who have committed to working with our office to see if we
5:44 am
can establish this 40% baseline. we see treasure island as the first community that will benefit this legislation. we should follow the giants and the ports lead of building 40% affordable and middle income housing and which is on the ballot for november requesting that any housing built on public land have a minimum of 30% affordable housing, 50% with middle income and the precedent that we are starting to set in our office to ensure that 40 is the new 30. a city where the brookins institution has recently found that income disparity is is growing faster than in any other city and where data from our own service agency with a widening gap. that figures showing for every
5:45 am
1,000 person in san francisco that 7.3 are worth a million like places like new york and washington d.c.. and san franciscans living in poverty has increased from 2007-2012. and with the wealth disparity illuminating the rapidly shrinking middle class declining over 10% over the same number of years. i think we as a city need to make a stronger commitment to ensuring that we are building as much affordable and middle income housing as possible. one of the plans is to do that and with the recent passage of the state law, i'm directing the board and staff to see if we can establish a baseline for
5:46 am
treasure island. i'm also requesting the planning department and mayor's office of housing explore a full range beyond treasure island that may qualify from the benefits on ab 2. the rest i submit. >>supervisor london breed: thank you. madam clerk, can we go to our 3:00 p.m. special order? city clerk: yes madam clerk, items 36-38 comprise the special order for a public hearing for persons interested in the public works decision dated september 18, 2014, for a tentative map for a new construction located at 289 perilta avenue.
5:47 am
>>supervisor london breed: supervisor avalos? >>supervisor john avalos: i requested this issue be continued because of a resolution in the courts. consistent with what we have done in the past, i would like to hereby move to continue this item to december 1st of this year. the parties will be having a case management conference that has been continued to november 18th. and with the understanding that hopefully there will be a resolution at that point. they have requested the continuance to december 1st. >> okay, supervisor campos has made a motion to continue to december 12th by supervisor farrell, colleagues. before we take this, is there any public comment on the continuance? seeing no public comment on the continuance, public comment is closed. okay, colleagues, can we take
5:48 am
the continuance or madam clerk, do we need a roll call vote for the continuance. city clerk: madam president, i believe you can do that. >>supervisor london breed: we'll take it to december 1, 2015, without objection. >> i believe the second? i didn't hear. >> supervisor farrell. >> that will move without objection. >> the public hearing will be opened. >>supervisor london breed: yes, thank you. where are we in the agenda? we are at the end. can you read immediate adoption without reference to committee. city clerk: items 45-50 are being considered for adoption without committee reference. a single roll call vote may enact these items.

5:50 am
francisco health center in the event of federal defunding. >>supervisor london breed: supervisor kim? >>supervisor jane kim: thank you, colleagues, i want to thank cosponsors for this resolution, supervisors campos, tang, mar, wiener, yee and cohen. this has become a quite important issue nationally as members of the house of representatives voted to defund planned parenthood. the countries largest provider of women's healthcare and also offered to cut 10% and have been cutting or eliminating family planning fund. this is anti-to a society that serves women. i hope that we send
5:51 am
the message that we will protect women in san francisco. this also supports planned parenthood and opposes any defunding of planned parenthood on a federal level and also the commitment to prioritize approval of funding to support the continued operation of our san francisco health centers in the event of federal defunding. colleagues, i ask for your support. >>supervisor london breed: thank you, supervisor kim. colleagues, can we take this item same house same call. without objection, this is adopted. next item. city clerk: item 47. approval of a 90-day extension for planning commission review for four ordinances restricting accessory dwelling units. >>supervisor scott weiner:

some of my coworkers are here on october fierce the start of the domestic violence month we know that domestic violence awareness month not the most we're aware of domestic violence we know department of transportation awareness month is the month we push awareness heard than at&t any other awareness we growing and working to address it in all the diverse ways so when i look across the room and till when i drive around san francisco on any day this might be a mark but when i drive around the city i think about all the different was and the different people who are work on case of domestic violence every day i think about crisis workers and the shelter advocates and police officers
6:23 am
and introoerm decreases and lgbtq advocates and burn staff and probation officers and leaders and journalists that be definitely putting a story out that public benefits worker in every sector but youth workers and teachers and childcare workers and attorneys in immigration law. >> criminal law and judges and family members and friends and loved ones and it is a lot of people who are really toughing domestic violence every day with the roll i'm not talking about the people that are just in life i think about our city as people mentions a hard year in the domestic violence field so i think about children who have stopped their fabricate from killing higher mother and
6:24 am
crisis to protect themselves from acts and about transgender women that have lost their life since we meet october 2014 i'm thinking about the access support for the people in the room and been the people that have not the people who lives have mattered more in the public eye or the mainstream movement and people lives that have not and people that come into contact and witnessing domestic violence and nerve and feeling there might be more dread of domestic violence and currently using a pattern the graduation and cell and denies october 1st what will i say what are we trying to make more aware and
6:25 am
what conversations are the conversations we want to push ourselves this month than many other moments the sooner moment to have those conversations not the moments after a tremendous loss has happened we want to talk about more than that denies though sometimes starting the conversation is more than just recognizing domestic violence happens in 11th relationship not just straight relationship we the 80 want to go further, however, from the conversation starts there let's start where we or it is more than that making survivors and community members aware obviously the conversation should start there or not we want people to know what we provide in the city we're not here to tell you what
6:26 am
you do or judge you over the experience the violence we're not here to say you must do abc d or whatever that's not what we were going we want to people to know i'm with the asian shelter or people to know we've trained anti advocate domestic violence protects to talk about what is happening to you not a special right we're not going to think about it which someone calls what language is that we want people to know transpeople you can come o to a ows some save places in the area and other lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgenders we have programs that are not just thinking that
6:27 am
we can fit you into what exists but programs trying to center you this is real and barriers our addressing and lower-income but you're addressing barriers you're facing that deserve special attendance and special programming safety funding not other funding that gets cut i think also the things we're trying to build is also more than saying there are all those bystanders with a role to play we know that every survivor didn't get programming he know that we do know that every survivor goes to someone that he trust at some point you go to the friend the trusted community member maybe not member who that will support you but go to small business that is our role to see those people as the kind of personnel whether they have a badge or degree maybe in
6:28 am
mechanic engineering they're also people that need support and training they need help with awareness and understanding that not just domestic violence happens but their victims or perpetrators but domestic violence is a nuance we want them to know we want to build their awareness if someone fights back or swears or there is no something that didn't mean that person a an abuser if you're a mythical unicorn of a human being we want our people to be seen as people and respond with xhashgs compassion and non-in the right direction judgment and support and in the papers all the time having the responses i've never
6:29 am
seen him angry or upset which he's at my housed we start from different places some people start with that and hear department of transportation no, no we're totally respect if he will if he that's not how domestic violence works what happens at home didn't happen everywhere that's the whole point we want to build are you think the awareness of everyone ourselves as workers and community members and family friend and sooner rather than later and action dominates from awareness so action in we've come a long way month is a big deal. >> (clapping) and next it alicia the volunteer corridor for women inc. it stands for women organized to

6:42 am
we not approval that at this time okay good morning commissioner president james and deputy director on may 7th david presented to the commission a 10 percent contingency we'll use on the contracts we mentioned that we would formally put everything on the sxhenlt agenda regardless of 25 thousand for the consent to use the contingency that's why the 42 is on the consent. >> i don't - it is 25 thousand not 29 this is not the policy that we have been following and see i'm going to deny approving that at this time.
6:43 am
>> okay. >> commissioner president james i think what she's saying the may meeting when david who at this time was head of contracted recorded to you that's y what we'll be doing you approved that at this time this is the first instance we've seen of that this is all it is instead of having to do a whole new item or 10 percent contingency it is not as though our approving a brand new item only the 10 percent contingency under extent the staff and also the contractor don't center to go through a brand new process every time a brand new item for 10 percent. >> commissioner sims. >> commissioner sims (laughter) it was from a point of clarification if we approved a budget item that is inclusive of
6:44 am
a 10 percent conspiracy why at force at all it is already approved. >> the point is that it is just showing you again, we actually are experiencing the 10 percent contingency; is that correct. >> i'll submit it is confusing. >> yes. >> if we've already approved a 10 percent conspiracy it seems to me not appearing in the consent agenda but wrafr be assumed by the paz. >> easier for us commissioner serlina. >> my recollection at the time the approved the 10 percent we were told told when was exercised we would be notified that's why it is on the consent agenda. >> i really would this is why we have a budget committee i really would like to refer
6:45 am
this back to the budget committee so the meat on this as a permanent item if he with approved it originally we shouldn't have to go through and put it in 0 the agenda for a 10 percent contingency downstairs i'd like to accepted it back to the budget committee. >> to look at this and a better process bra we change the rules okay. >> it was approved on may 7th it is a matter of information we're putting it on consent so technical we have your approval for the item. >> commissioner president james what if we were to do something where we put a if we have a way to put a notification on the agenda so that you know it is not a consent item you're not approving that but novelist maybe a new i don't know just a
6:46 am
new line item you know exercise. >> i don't want to hold up the agenda today, i on the budget committee ought to use the time to look at this and find a smoother way to handle that i want to table it at this time this is not clear the process is not clear we spending time discussing this so i really want to refer it by a, to the budget committee yes commissioner serlina. >> if we table this now about it delay funding. >> we've already approved that. >> i want to make sure by tabling this aspect it will for the delay it. >> since you've approved it we're fine and then you can figure out the budget committee can figure out howe how to put it. >> there's a second item on consent i don't know. >> so on john the new director
6:47 am
of contracts so the way we'll treat this it was approved in may and wait to figure out from the budget committee what the best process in the future. >> yes. yes. >> great, thank you. >> if i could make a incision i think the important point of visibility will be around when and if and how often a 10 percent contingency is deployed not as a consent item but not monthly or quarterly but good for us from the responsible point of view to be aware the 10 percent is deployed on one program or another not all but a sense of a year how often the 10 percent gets used. >> all right. we supposed to take action and not discuss those items on the consent
6:48 am
agenda with that, could we - we could take that item off and approve the one item of 5 thousand dollars on the consent agenda i need a motion. >> so moved. >> moved and seconded for the disability >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? i's have it so the that item passes could we have approval the september 2, 2015, meeting minutes? >> so moved. >> any correction? >> could you have a motion to approve. >> so moved. >> seconded. >> been moved and seconded the minutes. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the i's have to that motion carries. >> during public comment at

7:17 am
didn't do individual up and some district have and we understand the department of aging & adult services has the ability to shift around the numbers we notice a question about unit of service with full-time equalcy to staff for the clients that are being asked to serve our concerns with the a b d c dollars add back and brought to your attention and hoping that things get ironed out a little bit those are our concerns any questions. >> would you stayed that again your concern i'm listening and originally case platform was that every district in san francisco would have a one full-time qualitycy staff we are not sure that happened it looks
7:18 am
like things shifted we understand and the other concern the number of units of service agencies are being asked to do where is the parity which one full-time person their asked to do this many units of service and one-half additional or the same units of service so there is questions that have been raised as case bringing it forward as concerns. >> thank you uh-huh. >> any questions for commissioners and i want a clarification your concerns were discussed with staff prior to the development of the budgets we're being asked to approve today; is that correct. >> they've been discussed i guess when we were looking when what we saw agencies kablt compare against other agencies there are a question of the parity and why the expectation
7:19 am
is different those questions are raised in the past. >> the staff will be aware of the supervisorial district by the units of service they understand where you see potential adjustments or movement during the presentation of the budgets we could direct such questions for staff he did staff will be prepared to answer those questions. >> i believe so. >> thank you any old business? is none at this time new business review the funds for 6 month report january by kari wong okay. >> hi, good morning commissioners. >> good morning. >> i'm kari wong the director

7:21 am
steady referral sources to the community living fund one hundred 44 referrals and during the same time time period we served more clients than normal 6 hundred and 59 clients record breaking from the previous six months because of the transitional purposes slow the senior center a subsidiary of the home services programs that was doing the transitional care contract with medicare during the same time period a satisfaction survey that was pilfered to clients in june of 2015 and it was a very high 85 percent satisfaction for the clients that received the services the response rate was 74 percent out of a total of

7:23 am
>> one a minor one in the demographics portion of the report there is a bullet that says almost 1/3rd for instance, referrals from white it is should wish stated more than 1/3rd is 33 percent and the other question i had about the demographic study one of the things we've learned from the lgbt task force it was difficult to track our lgbt self-identifying seniors in the city no reference in the report to that segment it is interesting to understand and no gender definition been men and women it would be interesting to have a better understanding of that you. >> we can look at that and see how grand letter we can get in
7:24 am
the next report. >> i really have the concerns bus it was hard for me to review this report i'd like it in color if it comes in color we should be able to afford it is hard to see the shades here and i think we know afford what 7 copies for the commission i really would like to see this in color you have demographics like this this is no way for us to see for me so see the difference here. >> i'll be happy to provide the copies for this report in the future we can - >> i'd like to have a paper copy. >> sure we can do that. >> the commission can afford that. >> absolutely. >> thank you when you have reports like this with different scales it is much easier to read and see where the differences
7:25 am
really lie thank you because we get the budget in color. >> oh, i agree. >> we get the budget in color. >> absolutely. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> any other questions from - thank you thank you. >> okay. next item on the new business all items are voted by the commission requesting item a request to modify the grant agreement with bloipt for the provision of aging and disability resource center during the period of july one 2015 to june 2015 an additional amount of $66,000 accomplice a ten percent contingency fee for the revised not to exceed the amount of three hundred and 39 thousand plus
7:26 am
could i have a motion to discuss. >> so moved and okay. your on jason. >> good morning commissioner president james and commissioners and deputy director so as you can see i'll be present on a number of those items or the remainder of the items you'll be talking about the different sites throughout the city that are aging and disability aging strrz they provide information to the seniors and adults with disability i want to point out before i forgot one of the pattys concern that is money be used to fund ad r.c. sites specifically every one of those dollars is being used to fund ad r.c. sites specifically the ad backs to bringing up every single position and every site from the point one to a full fte
7:27 am
so give you a little bit of background on the ad r.c. i presented last year as a reminder this is a new initiative we started in fiscal year 2014-2015 higher years we had one lead agency providing the ad r.c. stenographers 22 different sites with throughout the city where someone half time and some by appointment only we're looking changing the model for 2014-2015 to have less sites by open more often by 5 offices people will, coming in more often from the regular neighborhood sites to get information this is services rather than having to set up on appointment or maybe come on a monday, wednesday, friday for a
7:28 am
couple of hours i believe that hypothesis is correct an increase in the clients consumerism's coming in a 5 percent increase from the previous year in fiscal year 2013-2014 this was for a lot of agrees hiring and start up around september this is quite a great success for the new model we've shrunk from 2022 but representing every supervisory district and provided more robust services so throwing out through case and going to the board of supervisors as patty said we raised all every .8 ftes that was where we were funding to one
7:29 am
full-time fte looking at doing a thoughtful analysis of sites throughout the city and in the last fiscal year when i noticed is that not only is are those sites providing great services for duplicateing a translation or form they'll coming back multiple times two to three times a year in those provisions we're looking at we're going beyond duplicate indicating the account how much information provides and follow-up are those by phone are those ad c sites presiding they're providing a valuable service that where people are coming in multiple times the agency. consistent in total contract but in do you see that person here in court todayed consumer
7:30 am
contact we're providing self-hem to those who have 3 sites two in the chinatown area and one of the sunset providing an additional ftes and online with an extra half of a position to again to help with this influx of not only new consumers but consumers coming back multiple times >> so that's a little bit of the background so through each one of the items as you can see most of them are related to the cost of people up to a full-time fte then with thirty street on a additional half position and self-help one fte. >> commissioner. thank you. >> i just wanted to go over the location of the services
7:31 am
golden gate is that a location in the castro they provide services at the castro senior center and is that where district 8 is located the representative for about district 8. >> district 8 is. >> includes the castro. >> right and offhand. >> golden gate into richmond. >> yes. that's. >> district one. >> district one golden gate senior centers the responding center in district one. >> where is the service provide for district 8. >> served by open house and it is also i believe there's a site this serves district 7 and 8 that would be sorry 30th street. >> that's okay jason is not
7:32 am
familiar with the surprisingly district to district 8 is served by 30th street as an open house. >> thank you. >> you had a question. >> my question is looking at this i'm looking at the old list and the problem is that when you change frequently the site location this confuses the seniors because they get use to going to a place and all of a sudden you change it and so because we don't go you know they like to remember so every year have we changed the location i think we should be very careful. >> that's a very good point we were aiming to stop in this new model in the older model for the 4 years the agency was
7:33 am
operational that was a large turnover in sites and personnel so but with this new model it is set sites those 12 sites have not changed and will not change for the next two years. >> unless they're not functioning the idea that was total confusion with us changing this commissioner sims. >> are you representing jason that all supervisorial district are are recommended evenly and adequately how would you explain. >> for supervisorial offhand district 3 that is where the chinatown is oath traffic for translation services and filling out forms maybe not as much traffic in the sunset or richmond ear it is not equal the numbers are not equal across the
7:34 am
city their adequately represented that serves a couple of districts thirty street serves districts seven and eight and another contractor that serves borrowed the one two districts that serve the community but there is some debate about whether or not the coverage is adequately addressed. >> that's what we're trying to do especially in the chinatown area and at 30th street we are seeing a lot more consistent traffic were note only duplicated for consumers coming multiple times for those two sites specifically there is dazzles more of a consistent trend over the last couple of
7:35 am
months. >> commissioner if i could add we're very fortunate to get the ad back money that brings everyone up, up to one fte jason is trying to analyze the numbers but both the unduplicated by the number of contact we don't have duplicated and try to make our system work, in a way those ordnances serving more people or serving them with more hours and more contract can have a little bit more we know once we go through each line item you'll have a chance to ask questions about those but we'll be careful watching this and analyzing and monitoring as we going forward we can there is a need for the
7:36 am
service it may not be completely adequate but right now that's what we're going for. >> it is weighed in favor of chinatown and someplace else and the area that 30th street serves in the outer mission area. >> well, let's just - any other questions about we're talking about bayview hunters point now they want to approve that one any questions about this one at this time any further questions any public comment? any public comment? at this time hearing none. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> emphasizing. >> did we read the actual. >> yes. >> i called for the motion

infrastructure funding to a full-time fte okay. >> so those two i'm looking our old schedule from the asian and be disabled resources center i'm chefk off the ones at the same location at this time it is the two that we've discuss as far were from last year and the same location. >> for those of us who don't have the disadvantaged of a lace list. >> the old o m i senior center located and 65 beverly street in the 34142 district 11 and
7:39 am
bayview hunters point with the first one we discussed and they are they still at 56 hundred thirsted. >> yes. >> okay. so this is 9341 district 10. >> in the western edition senior center. >> we're not there yet. >> we're talking about the bayview. >> under the umbrella of bayview as the agency they manage two sites one of the bayview correction sites and this one we approved that was both sites we approved the first thing. >> that's right. >> oh, we did. >> the weshs is d-6. >> so that one has both sites the western edition. >> right. >> that would be in i don't
7:40 am
think so them on here oh, yes, he did on turk street so they're located there so that would be supervisor breed. >> supervisor breed district. >> alrighty any any public comment? at this time on item b any public comment? hearing none i'll call question. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? i's have it that motion carries. >> okay item c request an authorization to modify the grant for the golden gate senior service for the provision of disability resource center ad r.c. during the period of july one 2015 to

7:42 am
boulevard 6221 geary boulevard that would be the richmond district. >> correct. >> do you have the - >> do you have an address there? >> golden gate i don't have that. >> sorry offhand i don't have the address it is on the list. >> 62 geary. >> that's was last year i just had that question any other questions? >> any questions? >> okay public comment on this one? >> is there - >> (inaudible). >> okay. >> any other questions. >> thank you. >> thank you for clarifying that we'll have we won't have to
7:43 am
look >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> > opposed? i's have it that motion carries request an authorization d request an authorization to modify the grant agreement with the northern california press the reason homes san francisco centering self-center inform the department of aging & adult services ad r.c. during the course user during july one 2015 to june 30th, 2015, an additional amount of 61 thousand dollars plus plus a 10 percent contingency invited amount of $437 plus a motion to discuss. >> so moved. >> so the nc pcs runs two
7:44 am
centers offhand i couldn't tell you what district that is. >> 2 and 6. >> thank you all right. any questions for commissioners . hearing none i'll call question >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? i's have it that motion carries item e request an authorization to modify the grant agreement with the day services for the provision of agents and ad r.c.burg or during the period of july one 2015 through june 30th, 2017, an immediately amount of 69 to tell us plus plus a 10 percent contingency for the rise total not to exceed amount of 200 and 65 thousand plus can i have a motion to discuss.
7:45 am
>> so moved and second. >> okay. this one is to add an additional hachlt position at the senior center. >> okay are there any questions he at this time from the commissioners okay public comment? good morning valerie the director and also part of case board and i first want to say that i want 0 commend the department for taking a risk and trying a new model i've been around a long time and ii have seen many versions that has been a great success we're accounting
7:46 am
the kings but i want to say this is a model is working and probably will worker better and we go forward on fine tuning it so the numbers and the units of service continue to fib looked at and modified and we're doing that with along with jason and his team a great success as far as 30th street we coffer district 8 and 9 so when we went about the advocacy i actually headed up the folks for case we wanted to make sure that everybody all the sgrikts got covered so since there was no agents in district 9 at this time that went in for the rfp we were hoping that 30th street got 23 ftes when that didn't happen we were part of it but we were
7:47 am
grateful for the .5 huge numbers and i think that is about location when there are other things oftentimes a lot more foot traffic on the daily basis the ftes seize 10 people a day and has thirty days advanced appointment with 35 we'll address that need but have a feeling again, there are are more neighborhoods that have anyone lingual people into the weeds it more language continues to be a barrier to services and see those resource centers is helping people to navigate that more effectively he like what sherry reign said there will be more needed we know that the number of people coming out the aging network is growing and we're seeing that certainly in
7:48 am
our program so thank you >> thank you is there any additional public comment hearing none i'll call for the question >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? i's have it that motion carries thank you are we on f request for authorization to modify the grant agreement with open house for the provision of aging and adult ad r.c. from july one 2015 in the additional amount of $7,000 plus plus a con percent contingency not to exceed amount 200 plus thousand dollars can i have a motion to discuss. >> so moved.
7:49 am
>> second. >> you're on. >> so again like most of sites we're bringing that position from a .8 fte to one full-time fte i do want to point out they're serving district 8 but also serving citywide too like two works in the new model to reach communities that were not necessarily assessing ad r.c. serves as much in the past the lgbt community and young adults with disabilities having tool works into the mix with new agencies in the last year is helpful in getting the word out of ad r.c. services that is beyond our historical penetration in the community okay. he know she said that but i'm looking at 1800 market street is that still the same
7:50 am
she said that was the same on the fourth floor. >> that's right. >> okay. all right. i wanted to be sure any comment from the commissioners. >> just madam chair i'd like to acknowledge i'll, recusing myself from this item. >> yes. thank you. >> any other comment from the commissioners? public comment at this time? any public comment? hearing none i'll call for vote >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? i's have it so that motion carries g request an interrogation to modified the grant agreement with the self-help for the self-help for the ad r.c. from jill one 2015 to june 30th, 2015, in the additional amount
7:51 am
of one hundred ti thousand dollars plus a 10 percent contingency not to exceed amount of 6 hundred and 71 thousand plus. >> can i have a motion to discuss. >> so moved. >> second. >> okay. >> so for self-help 3 sites two in chinatown and one in the sunset area so this money will be used to bring our positions up again to full-time position and adding an additional ftes shared amongst the 3 sites a floater within the two sites. >> okay any questions? maybe a summary statement how much full-time staff and how many are increased. >> so each sites as had a points 8 ftes so we're
7:52 am
increasing two a one full fte and alexander an additional one we're addressing adding one .6 across the two sites. >> okay. any other questions. >> the math probably works it seems like a significantly large budget item than similar appropriations for other agencies is there any difference in compensation model or overhead or something that contributes to a bigger cost per increase. >> i'm not an expert i think there increased fringe benefits bringing people up to full-time fte and agency and sites by agency i'll not be able to answer an analysis that is more for budget to answer i'm sorry,
7:53 am
i do know there is more indirect cost because - >> what agency. >> depends upon the agency. >> my question is this. >> i won't be able to answer that. >> the total cost. >> a significant bigger bump for other agencies that seems like a lot of money trying to understand the justification for - >> is it. >> it is more do i believe and you're adding less than two additional people in other cases you're bringing people up to one it looks like a lot of money for one agency. >> i know i'll not be able to offhand with self-help i'll not be able to answer that question than with some the contracts
7:54 am
they're adding indirect costs with the initial budget with last year that maybe the reason but i'd have to get back with you. >> someone here from budget that can perhaps answer the question. >> we have two sites just with this. >> ohio commissioners and director we're adding a one like - because in the beginning they
7:55 am
have a larger amount that's why we're adding the one full-time employee and then the two - yes i don't have full answer of that maybe i can collect the information from the contractor but they're adding the full-time employee and commissioners. >> they're going from 2.4 to 4 across the 3 locates so and the question from commissioner sims it that that increase which is about - more than doubled even though you're not doubling the number of staff perhaps once you get full-time employees benefits
7:56 am
go up and other costs for them this is the understanding the question that is being asked if you don't have it that's okay. >> also look at it there is an increase of supervisor costs we're adding another fte florida there is costs it is a combination this is it is probably all legitimate i'm uncomfortable with the explanation a. >> please. thank you. >> good morning. i'm martha petersen in looking at how thirty this model has been budgeted it look like roughly with you increase 4.2 ftes for each agency that comes out to roughly $31,000 across the
7:57 am
board, however, with self-help we are doing that 2 it is $31,000 for each position getting increased but for self-help we're spreading it across 8 positions the grand total is one point of people total ti thousand dollars if you look at that's how much self-help is charging when you - it is actually coming out less than how we been compensating other agencies so for the amount of people that are increasing the amount of staff it is less than what we are giving me to other agencies so - >> so if i understood it is normally 31 thousand thorough a .2 ftes your you increasing if you multiply by that it is much more.
7:58 am
>> across the entire model it looks like it is more but there is more staff increased so it looks like in the scale is larger it is actually no does that help. >> yes. >> question talked about funder go sites at this time with the self-help. >> there are 3 sites. >> 3 oh. >> yes. >> any other questions is that clear. >> yes. thank you. >> public comment at this time? okay >> i'm looking at the budget and from last year to this year i see where the increase is going with the catholic charities i've increased their staff if you look at the line item they've added a new person from a $17,000 person to a
7:59 am
$36,000 person and 33 salary to 36 and thirty thoughts to 36 so my calculations i'm not sure what they were talking about is more than one .6 increase in ftes the way the salaries with written on the budget page and then ramp went up to. >> i'm sorry what. >> rent by 21 thousand that's a different figure if year to year. >> any - are we waiting for the budget committee any comments from the budget committee at this time?
8:00 am
>> oh. >> commissioner sims has a question also so. >> she mentioned the rental property from 7 thousand to 11 thousand plus it is a $4,000 difference. >> commissioners and she mentioned the rental property there's by angle average of $4,000 along those lines he was comparing the previous operation items and some of them identify the property rent-controlled units equipment for this one i was wondering if i'm missing something in terms of property rentals across other agencies. >> hi i can't answer that.
8:01 am
>> it is how they budget it those sites have different budget may not charge represent it is the difference across the board in how agencies account for those things. >> okay. >> is there answer from the budget committee on - oh, commissioner sims question. >> i cannot help but feel my understanding was that staff would be pretty well addressed from case report it sounds like as though it there were extended dial around controversy and some level of debate around some of those budget allocation i don't feel that staff is as prepared to present some of the things as
8:02 am
i thought they might be so i'm age concerned. >> i think that the first concern was that everybody that all of the sites go from where we were .8 to one full-time person i'm sorry, i'm sorry we're not more presented from the jason and my conversations about the sheer numbers at self-help sites we need to increase it by more so they can address the niece of people waiting in line for the services that's was jason's intent in adding that extra .3 to each the 3 sites that we're looking at today, i have reviewed the numbers with him and feel strongly we need to do that i'm sorry it is not clear how to looks at in footstep budget why
8:03 am
those numbers we're not having a bettered understanding i'm not sure we've been very clear that self-help needs the increase in terms of their personnel. >> since there's a discrepancy here this is why we have a budget committee i know the meeting you don't need but those kinds of things can be accounted at that time, i'm thinking of like i'm sending something else to the budget committee many say the kind of thing that needs to be worked out with the budget committee and go back to the budget committee to really look at it and clarify so when we get to the commission meeting you know those doubts had a third
8:04 am
accounting in terms of what needs to be done so i'm looking at my budget and wondering is this something that i would hate to table at this time but i'm want to worry about the pleasure to send it back to the budget committee for a review pending which pleasure how strong we feel about this at this time i'd like to hear from you commissioners. >> to begin with can we we've approved the other parts of overall i'm not sure we can table one part. >> each item you can vote on each item i don't know but we vote on each item to either table or action or approve that
8:05 am
so you can table things and send it by a, to the budget committee we don't want to interrupt their operations it might be necessary if you're not thoroughly satisfied with the answers we're getting today and the skrerpz we have before us from the budget - >> so i'm new to this but that question came up when we reviewed the packet so i know there was the addition to make hold the .8 pegs or positions to one my understanding why two 0 agencies got one fte more than others my understanding was that there was more traffic through the sites and more of a program need that's why it was handles definitely than good evening from point a to point ftes we
8:06 am
added one whole fte so self-help and the half to the other agencies that's i mean it is more than an explanation of needs in terms of services required at the sites that's the justification. >> i also wanted to point out with a lot of the sites they were not operating on july 1st some of the operating experience we look at the 36 thousand they're paying for full-time positions last year we were not paying able to hire at sunset not hiring someone on july 1st there is a looks like a large increase in what they're being paying each position but now their fellowship staffed from july to june in 2016 we're
8:07 am
paying an actual full-time position a lot of the sites were not up and running in july. >> commissioner sims. >> well, my comment would be that in large part we're asked to trust the analysis and due diligence and work that is done by the department in preparation of those proposals that sounds significant conversation from riders in the community and the staff around this package i wouldn't want to embarrass anyone but far more prepared with granule discussion so we're not left with a trust me vote rather than a vote with full
8:08 am
confidence all the information is fully evaluated and appropriate. >> any others comments from commissions on this tell me any further unreadiness okay did you have a comment? public comment at this time? >> yeah. good morning. i'm nick with the senior services and looking over i don't want to barbara program your instructions were to this money would be used to bring staff from point a up to full-time this is how the money would be used i look at the operating expense detail of the program you're talking about now they've
8:09 am
using the this increase for increase in rent and we were not told to use the money for operating expense increases so i'm just wondering how they were able to do that and we were not? >> anybody want to staff? >> can you explain that? >> so i'd like to refer to eileen. >> elaine i don't have the prior years budgeted to see the years rent that's not my contract maybe they had an increase this year they
8:10 am
submitted to us last year those contracts go on for 3 years so i really can't verify if this is an increase the ad r.c. funding sfoordz only increased the staff from 8 to one that's it not other areas what was the fringe benefit and the indirect you're going to bring a person with full-time benefits so far as i am concerned, there were on increases for staff. >> okay. >> that increase in rent was authorized prior to this ad back fund has nothing to do with with the ad back funding the staff $36,000 a term of the remainder of the contract you're looking at 70 thousand. >> huge increase if other
8:11 am
programs so they have 70 thousand increase with the fringe and indirect that is why the money is municipal court higher than you see in the other contracts one thing to point out this question why this one is so much more than the others. >> thank you. >> uh-huh. >> any other comments from the commissioners? are you ready to vote public comment we heard from the public on this yes okay. i'll call the question are you ready? >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> of approving that budget and presented say i and. >> i. >> opposed? the i's have it so that motion
8:12 am
carries the last item requesting an authorization to modify the grant agreement with two works under the provision of asian and disabled research center for the period of july one 2015 through june 30th, 2017, an additional amount of 20 thousand plus plus a 10 percent contingency hold on a revised total not to exceed amount of one hundred and $54,000 a motion to discuss. >> so moved. >> second. >> okay. your on. >> great so our last item this is for two works to bring over or their position to a full-time positi position. >> okay too works is on the last
8:13 am
year so any comments from the commissioners? any comments? okay public comment on this one? >> public comment hearing none i'll call for the vote. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? i's have it so that motion carries we have announcements any announcements? >> thank you. >> it is actually a question i thought maybe the contract staff might know on the other add back we've been waiting to hear is the community services they also received an ad back we were wondering can we have any information about timing on this one? >> this is public comment not -
8:14 am
>> eelena i'm working on the ad back funding planning to present to commission no november we're accounting all the fuentes 22 agencies involved and $1.5 million plus in add back fund amongst the 22 agencies for 5 hundred thoughts and one million dollars so going to finalize the budget tomorrow and meeting and presented in november. >> okay. thank you. >> uh-huh. >> any others announcements announcements public comment? >> any public comment hearing none can i have a motion to adjourn. >> so moved and second. >> thank you it is approved we're adjourned

>> welcome to "culturewire." today we are at recology. they are celebrate 20 years of one of the most incredibly
8:16 am
unique artist residency programs. we are here to learn more from one of the resident artists. welcome to the show, deborah. tell us how this program began 20 years ago. >> the program began 20 years ago. our founder was an environmentalist and an activist and an artist in the 1970's. she started these street sweeping campaigns in the city. she started with kids. they had an exhibition at city hall. city officials heard about her efforts and they invited her to this facility. we thought it would coincide with our efforts to get folks to recycle, it is a great educational tool. since then, we have had 95 professional artists come through. >> how has the program changed over the years? how has the program -- what can
8:17 am
the public has an artist engage with? >> for the most part, we worked with metal and wood, what you would expect from a program like ours. over the years, we tried to include artists and all types of mediums. conceptual artists, at installation, photographers, videographers. >> that has really expanded the program out. it is becoming so dynamic right now with your vision of interesting artists in gauging here. why would an artist when to come here? >> mainly, access to the materials. we also give them a lot of support. when they start, it is an empty studio. they go out to the public area and -- we call it the big store. they go out shopping, take the materials that, and get to work. it is kind of like a reprieve, so they can really focus on their body of work. >> when you are talking about
8:18 am
recology, do you have the only sculpture garden at the top? >> it is based on work that was done many years ago in new york. it is the only kind of structured, artist program. weit is beautiful. a lot of the plants you see were pulled out of the garbage, and we use our compost to transplant them. the pathway is lined with rubble from the earthquake from the freeways we tour about 5000 people a year to our facility, adults and children. we talk about recycling and conservation. they can meet the artists. >> fantastic. let's go meet some of your current artists. here we are with lauren. can you tell us how long have
8:19 am
been here so far and what you're working on? >> we started our residency on june 1, so we came into the studio then and spent most of the first couple weeks just digging around in the trash. i am continuing my body of work, kind of making these hand- embroidered objects from our day-to-day life. >> can you describe some of the things you have been making here? this is amazing. >> i think i started a lot of my work about the qualities of light is in the weight. i have been thinking a lot about things floating through the air. it is also very windy down here. there is a piece of sheet music up there that i have embroidered third. there is a pamphlet about hearing dea -- nearing death. this is a dead rabbit. this is what i am working on now.
8:20 am
this is a greeting card that i found, making it embroidered. it is for a very special friend. >> while we were looking at this, i glanced down and this is amazing, and it is on top of a book, it is ridiculous and amazing. >> i am interested in the serendipity of these still life compositions. when he got to the garbage and to see the arrangement of objects that is completely spontaneous. it is probably one of the least thought of compositions. people are getting rid of this stuff. it holds no real value to them, because they're disposing of it. >> we're here in another recology studio with abel. what attracted you to apply for this special program? >> who would not want to come to the dump? but is the first question. for me, being in a situation that you're not comfortable in has always been the best.
8:21 am
>> what materials were you immediately attracted to when you started and so what was available here? >> there are a lot of books. that is one of the thing that hits me the most. books are good for understanding, language, and art in general. also being a graphic designer, going straight to the magazines and seeing all this printed material being discarded has also been part of my work. of course, always wood or any kind of plastic form or anything like that. >> job mr. some of the pieces you have made while you have been here. -- taught me through some of the pieces you have made while you have been here. >> the first thing that attracted me to this was the printed surface. it was actually a poster. it was a silk screen watercolor, about 8 feet long. in terms of the flatwork, i work with a lot of cloddish. so being able to cut into it come at into it, removed parts,
8:22 am
it is part of the process of negotiating the final form. >> how do you jump from the two dimensional work that you create to the three-dimensional? maybe going back from the 3f to 2d. >> everything is in the process of becoming. things are never said or settled. the sculptures are being made while i am doing the collages, and vice versa. it becomes a part of something else. there's always this figuring out of where things belong or where they could parapets something else. at the end goal is to possibly see one of these collage plans be built out and create a structure that reflects back into the flat work. >> thank you so much for allowing "culturewire" to visit this amazing facility and to learn more about the artists in residence program. is there anything you like our
8:23 am
viewers to know? >> we have art exhibitions every four months, and a win by the public to come out. everybody is welcome to come out. we have food. sometimes we have gains and bands. it is great time. from june to september, we accept applications from bay area artists. we encouraged artists from all mediums to apply. we want as many artists from the bay area out here so they can have the same experience. >> how many artists to do your host here? >> 6 artist a year, and we receive about 108 applications. very competitive. >> but everyone should be encouraged to apply. thank you again for hosting us. >> thank you for including us in "culturewire." ♪

8:39 am
mandates, of course, there are over one thousand laws in the looks at of the united states covering language assess those are the critical major laws and impacters on the federal, state, and local level so everything from title 6 of the civil rights title 4 of the 1964 in the case oils i know that supervisor eric mar is familiar with the presidential executive order and the dodge guidelines to the state laws and the local level san francisco has by far the largest assess law in the nation that is through hundred percent to our community partners and through the work with the board of supervisors and then, of course, our priority with our diverse population following the priorities always at the front is crisis emergency public school public safety situations

8:46 am
introduction at roll call of legislation with 21 pages of item is the best way to provision to meet the needs of our population but we're trying to do our best to do both you know we might look at later on how our resources to better benefit our la p individuals that want to participate maybe having more interprets available in different languages at boards meetings rather than at that particular time the documents so hope we'll cover and highlight the annual report. >> thank you this slide give us a it is a quick snapshot of some of the finding from the report that you have in front of you the 2015 report which constituent results from fiscal year 2013-2014 and a as report from the 26
8:47 am
departments considered the tier one departments the largest public serving departments so as you can see there is some good news and the since the city's bilingual cracking contact staff increased by a third and developing more policies to communicate with their alignment proficient clients and customers and increased 16 percent the not so good news the limit budget decreased by 9 percent by the 2013-2014 year was not as consist data collection and reporting is still proving to be difficult for the departments though our office is work to provide as much technical assistance we've seen in terms of the staff that are assigned to the language assess liaisons that effects the quality of
8:48 am
reporting we've seen a lot of turnover this slide provides on overview of the citywide access budget for 2013-2014 or 2014-2015 the total overall assess budget was $8.2 million as you can see the majority of that budget was for bilingual premium pay for employees followed by telling phonetic interpretation and finally wanted to highlight a few of the new developments related to language assess occ is making improvements to increase the quality of services this year we trained more department than ever over 60 depths the amendments to the la o and the thirds cycle thoughts
8:49 am

8:50 am
case participate in the annual community interprets training wiper trying to professional lists interpretation that is a profession if we can work together with the community and city we can grow over ability to communicate better and meet quarterly with the community partners and discuss challenges and approaches and solutions so collective we're committed to better serving the la p residents want to make sure that english is not a first language as equal access to a information services that is what you'll residents and workers and people that go to school and live and work in san francisco deserve and deserve nothing less than our best thank you and if you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer them. >> i have a couple of quick
8:51 am
ones from c aa when tagalog or filipino languages reach the 5 percent of the population la p or 10 thousand residents citywide how close are the vietnamese and russian and arabic to getting to that threshold. >> that's a good question rights on the tail the last america survey results. >> so the census and the more accurate credit adjust to the under count. >> neither of the above in the past when the ken us asked daylight questions that was more informative than in 2010 reduced to 10 questions hardly any information about the
8:52 am
foreign-born or access the american community survey is a salvaging one in every 40 households so oftentimes people that don't speak worker absent a first language don't get to participate in that in terms of it is annual but we use the 5 year acs report to it fluctuates into yerba buena and the filipinos the numbers are close to the 10 thousand thresholds we wanted to make sure by the in answer to our question improving hundred and 50 thousand people in san francisco speak schienz that's cantonese and. >> i'm trying to get at filipino and russian. >> russian was at thirteen thousand plus the l e p are almost 84 hundred it is close to you know getting close to
8:53 am
threshold not quite there this is followed by vietnamese that is at about 64 thousand and then what about arabic. >> that is not nearly up there we have if you read the law allows us to identify the population for instance, ma ago works with us we have an estimated 20 thousand mayan rosenfeld in a close spanish not their fairs e first language or english we are working and supervisor campos has been taking the leadership of that and champion that community so we're able to work with they're building of the capacity and working on getting better details about the population so we can we are work with the arresting bib community and many of the groups that serve the
8:54 am
continuities are grantees we'll identify their needs and look at the merging population. >> and laughing the numbers you said you used the american survey my understanding a census for homelessness and immigrant population the american survey scare and other methods of surveying but that didn't work for the limits english speaking population; is that right. >> it in work in you take the mayan they're under counted we want to provide support and capacity building to the community-based organizations and this special study when we safeguards the filipino a detailed study was done we talked with the community experts and language experts so we tried to get as itch
8:55 am
information on the population and because the census done every few years that is more accurate. >> the ap s is done annually and only tone questions so acs took the places of the long form with detailed questions that's the original one of the incredible source that most organizations use to look at population data. >> i guess the troubling numbers about is dropping of language assess budget is very troubling given that half the population speaking language other than english i think over 40 percent of san francisco are people born outside of the u.s. but increasing the budget for bilingual staffing and language
8:56 am
assess but not going down why has it drooped 10 percent. >> large department that carry the weight of the numbers a larger monolingistic population they serve this any fluctuation on that kind of impacts this entire you know citywide numbers i will will have to - our community partners work closely 0 so have a provision for a lot of things we're trying to encourage the department not
8:57 am
about more money and resources. >> what is confusing the increase in bilingual staff of 31 percent and yet the drop in language assess budget is not 4 one or two percent but 10 percent why is that. >> one suggestion might be e might be the fact as reported in the prior years included the certified and uncertified the staff not certified not receiving the premium pay that really drop in the budget for staffing is specifically relate to the bilingual premium pay. >> how did that compare to previous years. >> i think actually, this is the first time it drops age i
8:58 am
